Several Bossier schools took time out of the school day to learn about President John F. Kennedy.
Central Park Elementary and Parkway High School have John F. Kennedy memorials in their hallways.
The memorials are filled with newspaper articles and historic photos.
“I still can’t wrap my head around that. I’ve seen the film a 100 times and it’s still hard for me to believe every time I watch it,” said Vice Corps Commander Treasure Winters, a senior at Parkway High School. “
“Just seeing is wife go back to pick up the pieces of his body that was blown off is incredible.”
"We teach the colonies and early history of America. They don’t really come into later history. But, JFK made a huge impact with civil rights and our kids need to know about it,” said Julie Frederick, a fourth grade Science and Social Studies teacher at Central Park
At Central Park Elementary, Principal Suzette Hadden put together the display. At Parkway High School, the Airforce Junior ROTC program assembled the memorial.
